I also think shelter shopping would be a good idea. Maggie is a shelter mutt, adopted at a year old, and one of the most fabulous dogs I've ever known. She meets a lot of your requirements. Her temperament is amazing. She's a loving, funny, outgoing little spitfire. Very terrier like.

We're almost positive she's a mini schnauzer/boston terrier mix. Her coat does require stripping, but my parents like it shorter, so I trim her with scissors and thinning shears a few times a year.

Hmmm. I don't know. I'll do more researching and work on my requirements. I'm really trying to avoid shelters and adult dogs.

But thank you for your suggestions. I'll check out the breeds that were offered!

You need a Lucy She sheds (I find fur bunnies in the corners when I vacuum), but I can pet her for hours and not have a single hair in my hand. I take her to the groomers ever 3-4 months to have her brushed out and get her pantaloons trimmed up.

Go find that perfect shelter dog. They're awesome

A well bred RT, standard or giant, would match as well but finding them can be harder. That said, RTs are a low cost breed, ime.

Google Deckers giant Rat Terriers and see if they perk your interest. You might see more dog aggression in them than border terriers and possibly more barking but it's doubtful. They'll be a breed I will likely own again someday.


Have you looked into a well bred staffordshire bull terrier?

Oh I missed that, I just thought DA/DR was being avoided for ease of life.

Rat Terrier. And you likely can find one at a reasonable price.

Fun, family friendly dog with less exercise requirements, or content with a walk not a beasting, screams toy breeds to me, not terrier!

Papillion?

Bichon frise? Need grooming, but not difficult.

Same with shih Tzu. Fun dogs. Small but very sturdy.

Cavalier?

A pug like izzie?

Min pin?




Etc. Etc.

What is your reasoning for wanting to avoid shelters or an adult dog??

the grooming requirements of a 'drop coated' breed are different than the elaborate grooming req of a poo or schnauzer. if you want to keep your maltese or shih long, just run a fine tooth comb through them a couple times a day to keep ahead of the snarls, and use a slicker on any mats you DO find forming (most groomers should be nice enough to show you the "trick" to brushing out a mat instead of cutting it out)

what about a tibetan spaniel? theyre like pekes or cavs only less.... grotesque. can go go go go but are very very sweet, not typically DR or snarky
